Are you the fella who casts the first stone then?
Pleased to meet you.
Assuming you mean this one?A richly deserved VC for Cpl Budd - Para.
Devastating for his family that it was awarded posthumously.
Lets hope they don't have to sell it to survive.
Blair, are you proud?
I agree with that, too. Surely, any death is a tragic loss.vandyke said:scorrpy, your sentements are spot on however probably not the time nor place to raise them.
However i think mods have to maintain the same standards throughout. some of the comments recently about the ipswich murders and the recent deaths of 2 children in corfu. Were disgracefull, although in the naffi bar they should have been deleted. Why do we hold the deaths of soldiers so sacred yet the mods allow CRASS comments about other tragic deaths?
OK where do you want to draw the line?vandyke said:ok, they maybe not close to home to us but imagine anyone searching for information on a loved one and google throws up Arrse how would the parents of these kids in corfu feel reading the comments.
They were also posted when arrse was all over the press and a lot of non members viewing the site. what image does that portray of pte T.Atkins
